What Is Natural Family Planning?

Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a science based, natural and highly effective method that couples can use to either achieve or avoid pregnancy. It is a scientific method based on understanding the fertile and infertile phases of a woman’s menstrual cycle. Not only is it healthier, it is the ethical way to plan a family since it does not rely on contraceptives, many of which act as abortifacients. (Meaning they kill the fetus)

Together, couples learn to read the signs of fertility, and then learn how to  apply this knowledge through a variety of methods.

NFP is 100% Natural

No drugs, chemicals, or devices are involved. It honors our dignity as persons by respecting the amazing, God-given rhythms and functions of the feminine body. 

NFP is Good For Marriage

Divorce is practically non-existent for couples who practice it. It puts fertility in the hands of God, while at the same time giving couples a greater sense of empowerment.
